Rude Mechanicals Vineyard Gin - Boutinot

Rude Mechanicals Vineyard Gin NV


Rude Mechanicals

Conceived in a vineyard, born in a barn...Vineyard Gin is the distillation of fine wine and English spirit fused with a clutch of hand-picked botanicals. Double distilled in 200 litre copper alembics we harmonise the skill of three specialist artisans in the spirit of collaboration.

Meet the producer

Rude Mechanicals – like so many great nights, stories and mistakes – starts with wine.

After several combined...



If Rude Mechanicals was going to bother making a gin, we were going to have do it properly – from scratch and using wine from our vineyards. It’s that combination of our wine and Dr John Walters’ original scratch spirit that forms the unique base for our gin. The intensity of the flavours and aromas in Vineyard Gin come from the second distillation, where the hand-selected botanicals are distilled into the gin rather than using more conventional compounding methods. Only the hearts of both distillations are used in order to achieve Vineyard Gin’s ludicrously smooth finish.

Tasting notes

A botanical compôte of juniper, mandarin flesh, cardamom, peel of clementine, lemon zest & wine. This is a gin that tastes like a gin… just a really good one.

Food match

We like to think the distillation of our efforts can be experienced in its purest form: sipped from a heavy tumbler with a single cube of ice. Alternatively, enjoy a generous measure with your favourite tonic. Serve over plenty of ice with a clutch of gently squeezed black grapes and a fresh basil leaf.
